Helena's Hometown Date May Just Be the Most Dramatic in Bachelor History
Helena Sauzier's hometown date started off peacefully enough. After a flirty game of tennis, she and Bachelor Matt Agnew made the trek over to her parent's house in order for him to meet her nearest and dearest. At first, things seemed to be going as well as any other stock standard Bachie hometown visit would. But, before too long, Matt made one crucial error. That's right, he mentioned that he didn't think Helena had spoken french when they first met on the red carpet. As it turns out, Helena had spoken french and boy, was she not going to let that slip in memory slide.
Essentially, what Matt assumedly thought was an innocuous comment ended up being a hell of a lot more than to to Helena, who took him forgetting what happened as a sign that she didn't "stand out' in his mind. "I can't do this if I'm just like nothing," she declared. As much as her mum tried to reassure her that it wasn't necessarily an indication of her disinterest in her, Helena was inconsolable.
"I can tell you're not in this, my family can tell you're not in this, so I'm just like what am I doing here," she declared to Matt before sending him on his way. But, Matt wasn't going down without a fight, and repeatedly attempted to smooth things over. "I'm so happy that you're here and I don't want that to be the end of our story," he pleaded, "I'm not going to make excuses, I'm human."
Although Helena seemed to be reassured momentarily, she ultimately flipped back to her original stance, saying, "I don't see it moving forward, I really don't, I call bullshit."
Thus, Matt was left with "no idea" if he'd ever see her again at all, let along at the impending rose ceremony.
